Mark an old submission

Hi,

I have a sheet I created where a name and status are being inputted through a Smarthseet form. I am trying to figure out a formula to mark old submissions.

Meaning if someone submits a name with the status of "Onboarding" and then submits the form again with the status "Hired", what formula can I use to mark the old submission?

I'm not sure if the Modified/Created Date option will work because sometimes a submission can happen within the same day or even the same hour.

I was playing around with duplicate and a MIN formula based on Row ID, but couldn't figure it out.


Thanks for the help!

    Insert an auto-number column with no special formatting. Then you can use a formula such as

    =IF(COUNTIFS(Name:Name, @cell = [email protected], [Auto-Number]:[Auto-Number], @cell> [Auto-Number]@row)> 0, 1)
